Welcome

The University of Wisconsin Opera Props is a friends-group designed to encourage the UW Opera and its connected voice program in the UW School of Music.  The organization has two primary goals: to promote and enhance the enjoyment of opera productions, while encouraging attendance at other vocal programs by students and faculty, and to fund annual awards to promising vocal students.  Opera Props seeks to serve as a link between University Opera and the surrounding community. The group welcomes as members all who enjoy the UW Opera productions, and who take an interest in the progress of students in its program.
